The APU Syllabus provides an outline and schedule of the courses available at APU. Students are able to read the syllabus and finalize a course plan before registering for their courses.

*APU has incorporated “Course Numbering” as a way of indicating factors such as where a subject is situated within the curriculum, as well as how the curriculum is systemized. “Course Numbers” can now be found in the syllabus of every course/subject to allow students to identify with relative ease the subject/course which Area of Study it falls into, etc.
